Volunteers have come alongside World Pediatric Project from the beginning to carry out what we envision with our partners for transformed global pediatric health care delivery. The surgeon who provides surgery, the physician who consults and trains, the nurse who carefully inventories medical supplies, the student who serves as a friend and support to a patient coming to the U.S., the board member who provides guidance and oversight, the community member who helps organize a busy clinic day for a traveling team, the supporter who helps run an event and champion fundraising efforts… all the many different types of volunteers are the collective force for World Pediatric Project’s mission. They are the doers, the collaborators, the ambassadors. We are always amazed by the transformations they make possible.
Non-Medical Volunteers are at the heart of the World Pediatric Project family, directly providing social, logistical, and transportation support to World Pediatric Project patients and their families.
WPP’s Medical Volunteers are the foundation of our network and our programs. Our medical volunteers are highly trained pediatric specialists committed to long-term program building, excellence in patient care, and collaboration with local health workers.
